Director of Scouting Kyle Crabbs joins former NFL scout Matt Williamson, the host of the Locked On NFL podcast to discuss Kyle’s 2017 NFL Draft board straight from the 2017 NFL Draft Prospectus. Kyle and Matt discuss watching players in a vacuum before exposing oneself to external opinions and the authenticity that results when putting out player assessments.
Matt picks out some notable players on Kyle’s board to discuss; including Alabama’s Eddie Jackson and Cam Robinson, Washington Safety Budda Baker, Offensive linemen Pat Elflein (Ohio State), Sean Harlow (Oregon State) and Dorian Johnson (Pittsburgh) and more. The conversation is centered around what Kyle saw in each prospect and why they’ve found themselves slotted so high on his draft board in comparison to the general consensus of the media.
Williamson, who spent three years with the Pitt Panthers, one year with the Akron Zips and one year with the Cleveland Browns before spending the next decade with ESPN, has hosted the Locked on NFL podcast for nearly 200 total episodes and has taken the podcast into the upper echelon of daily NFL podcasts on the internet. His knowledge of the game serves as an outstanding foundation for a running conversation on a draft board and the prospects’ merits involved.
